St. George Intermodal Terminal in New York. Courtesy Wikimedia (left).
St. George Ferry Terminal is the gateway to Staten Island and incorporates a seven-boat ferry fleet, sixteen separate local bus lines, the Staten Island Railway and additional pedestrian and vehicular traffic. The project includes the rehabilitation of existing waiting room, concourses, public and NYCDOT spaces, as well as stairs, ramps and retail areas. A major focal point of the renovated facility is a new arch structure that spans the new north building and the new maintenance facility. The arch is 80 feet in height and 300 feet in length. Design was also provided for the new esplanade, plaza and connection building, including new elevators, stairs and escalators. The project resulted in a more efficient and accommodating facility, allowing for better connections between the different modes of transportation available at the site, while supplying a more inviting atmosphere. The terminal is the first intermodal facility in the country to receive LEED certification.
